Sally Hansen - Fuschia Power

Hi everyone!! Happy Pink Wednesday ;0).

Today I have a polish that Amanda from Fashion Footing surprised me with.  It was on my wish list and she sent it to me ;0).  Thanks Amanda!!

Fuschia Power is from Sally Hansen's Xtreme Wear line.  It's a beautiful, bright fuschia creme.  While the formula was a bit thick, it was manageable.  It was a bit streaky on the first coat, but evened out with the second coat and was fully opaque. 

In these pictures, I used OPI Natural Nail base coat, 2 coats of Fuschia Power, and Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat.

I then decided to add some polka dots to this mani.  I remember seeing how well pink and black went together in this post by Jessica (LuvMyLacquer) and decided to try black polka dots.  I used Nicka K Noir, which is just a simple black creme.  I then added Etude House Extreme Jewel to some of the dots.  Here's the result:

I used my handy dandy bobby pin to do the dots.  The silver didn't always go perfectly into the middle of the black, but I still like the way it came out.

Also, you'll notice on my thumb a few thin swirly black lines.  The polish started get a bit stringy as I used it to create the dots.  I guess it was because of the air hitting it.  It wasn't too much though, so I decided to leave it.  I later read in a post on The Polish Well here that if a polish gets too stringy, adding a bit of thinner helps.  So I'll be doing that in the future.

So what do you guys think of Fuschia Power?  Do you like the pink/black/glitter combo?

  3. I love Sally Hansen and this is a perfect example why: this color is just glorious. I really like it with the black, it's very girly rock and roller (if that makes sense).
